So I went to a Petco for the first time today

It was friggin' awesome! It makes petsmart look like crap... especially the one in my area. Everything was clean and shiny and all the fish looked amazing.

I was going to get a book shelf aquarium but I can't justify spending $50 on a 6 gallon aquarium. Plus it was too long to fit anywhere right now.

Luckily the trip wasn't wasted because they had stealth heaters on sale so I bought 2. I also bought a 1 gallon kritter keeper.. wish I had gotten more, my petsmart doesn't sell kritter keepers.

And wooo buddy did I find a betta... I was kinda hoping to find a King because I miss having one but they didn't have any. What I found instead is so much more awesome.....



That's right.. I got the DT HMPK I've been wanting for months AND he's a Dalmatian... Today I totally win at life LOL

He should get more spots as he gets older. He's also got a butterfly pattern around the entire edge of his fins. I'm hoping once he warms up he'll get darker and the pattern will be more apparent.

He's settled in now and swimming around and he's such a spitfire. Flaring for the mirror. He's actually got pretty decent fins besides the wonky dorsal fin. He's just special enough that if I had a dal female that was PK, HMPK, or HM I just might make an exception to my "no breeding pet store fish" rule.


I really wish I had a petco closer. The store is nicer and their products just seem better in general.

from what i am to understand, Dalmatian's dominant, so if you breed him to a good female, you should get dals in the fry. :d i'm trying to research Dalmatian, but it's so hard to find good info. x-X that one link on bettysplendens is the only info i can find.
